So much of Scripture has hidden “types” and wonderful analogies that we often overlook. Purple is the color of royalty, and “fine linen” is “the righteous acts of the saints” (Rev. 19:8). In Luke 16:19 Jesus spoke of a rich man who “was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day.” It would seem that the rich man is a “type” of the self-indulgent Laodicean church that lets the sinner starve at his gate without offering the Bread of Life. It says that it’s rich, but it is wretch, poor, blind, miserable, and naked.
2 Chronicles 3:14 And he made the veil of blue, purple, crimson, and fine linen, and wove cherubim into it.
